A cream colored dress with pink floral print and a white cardigan tomorrow for a wedding? I wish I had something more fall ish but I don’t have time to shop unless I go with a black dress with black tights wich seems too black maybe for a wedding. So am I obsessing or is this breaking the fall dress code, after labor day rule, and more perhaps. ugh.

Do you own a colored cardi you can wear with the black dress?

That is a LOT of white/almost white for a wedding, especially a not spring/summery one. Could you wear the black dress with white sweater? Then less white but also not so dark.

I dont think a black dress is too black for a wedding at all! Dress it up with some colourful jewlery or shoes or a cardigan. Or even just silvery or sparkly! Everyone else will probably be wearing dark colours too.

Personally I think the black on black is better than what you’re considering wearing. If you have anything to add a pop of color (necklace, earrings, bracelet, belt) I would go that route. As PPs have said, that is a lot of white/almost white for a wedding. Especially a fall wedding.

I agree with the black being better than wearing an almost all white to a fall wedding. don’t wear that outfit

I think the dress is fine…so it’s white but it has a pink floral print. Do you have any colored cardigans that would go with it? It sounds a little Spring-y but I don’t necessarily think it’s inappropriate since it has a print.
Otherwise maybe the black dress wth a colored cardigan

Do a colored tight with your black dress…that would make it more fallish

@Leemarie: i say stop by your local Ross and pick yourself up a nice dress for under 20.00 ; )

I don’t think it’s too much white in general, but it sounds awfully summery for a November wedding. What kind of shoe are you planning to wear? What you’re describing sounds like a “white sandal” kind of outfit, which is definitely out of season.
I’d do the black dress, with bare legs? it must be ok temperature-wise for bare legs unless you were planning to wear tights with the white dress?

I would need to wear tights with the black one cause it’s a little too short in the front, it’s a high/low. Not with the other dress though it’s 3/4 length. I planned on wearing nude heels nothing white or strappy. Well here I go going to see if I can fit into any of my daughters tights to go with the black dress.
For what it’s worth t his isn’t exactly a super classy event. Church and a pretty informal reception (although HUGE) in east L.A. ya. I don’t know why I’m trying to get myself off the hook for finding something else to wear, I guess I was just hoping would be that easy.

No white cardigan with a cream dress….They clash, and are also way too white for a (fall) wedding! I second the idea of a new dress at Ross… Plus, then you’ll have a new dress if a similar situation ever comes up in the future 🙂
If you want to stick with what you have, though, post some pictures! We can probably help a little better 🙂

@Dialysate: That’s what I was thinking, too. Cream and white don’t go together.

@Leemarie: I think you’re way better off wearing a black dress with tights than a 3/4 length cream dress, even if it does have a pink print, with a white cardigan. Especially if it’s an informal wedding – sounds way too much like something I’ve seen brides on here debating wearing for their casual weddings. Buy tights if you need to.
